Additional Information

Alex is an alligator who has experienced 'scary' things. In this charmingly illustrated story, he talks about how this affects him and how he copes.

By reading about the different parts of Alex that come out because of the scary things he has experienced, such as The Destroyer when he is angry, Spacey when he dissociates, and Puddles when he is sad, children will learn to recognise when they experience these emotions themselves and find solutions for overcoming them. Alex talks about the different coping strategies he uses to get back to being himself, such as breathing techniques, a counting game, painting, and finding a safe space he can go to, encouraging children to think about when they can do to help themselves handle difficult feelings.

An essential resource for professionals working with children who have experienced trauma, including social workers, counsellors, therapists, and child psychologists, as well as for parents and foster carers. Suitable for children aged approximately 4 to 8 years.

This is an excellent book with wonderful illustrations. The story is geared toward special needs children and gives them many coping skills to boost their confidence but is also a great book for any child dealing with fears or anger. It gives great alternative behaviors and helps the child know that he is not alone but is written and illustrated in a humorous and very child friendly way to be engaging and empowering,
Great story to use with children who are trying to (1) label their emotions, and (2) learn how to cope with their emotions. Definitely a must have for any therapy office that works with children. Also great for parents to read with their children!
Outstanding writing and illustrations! A wonderful resource for children and caretakers dealing with trauma and anxiety.
